Faalele - This is a name many will be discussing leading into the draft and some have said GB should have sights on if we need a new starting RT. I'm fairly high on Faalele, I know he has the length and the size and experience, but my concern is that I haven't watched enough film and look forward to reports out of Senior bowl on just how fluid and quick he is in mirroring - the dude is massive and if he has a slow motor all the size and strength in the world won't do anything. Some are saying look at how big Sewell was...well folks this guy has Sewell by nearly 50 pounds BUT he does have two more inches of height and frame to go with that.

Christian Watson - This North Dakota State wide receiver proved every single day at practice and then in the game that he can deliver against competition so many said he could hang with. Day 3 his break and release to beat Thorpe award winner Coby Bryant was kind of the signal many finally took notice of. On game day he was seen using his route skills to come open, but was only looked at a time or two and did have the longest completion of the day for his team (38 yards) and only a 39 yarder to Calvin Austin for the opposition eclipsed it. That said what Watson did each day of practice was he belongs. His body control and ability to use his extremely long and strong frame at a tall 6'4' 200+lb frame that has good speed (not incredible). However, here's why I'm doubling down on Watson as a guy for Green Bay that goes beyond just his motivation to continue to prove his critics wrong, to prove that a kid from a small school can succeed...the kid has the grit and willingness to play every play even if that means blocking. To me, he is everything Lazard has to exert maximum effort towards to be. Yes, I'm a big time Lazard fan due to his lunch pale mentality, solid hands when called upon and willingness to block - Watson is all that and was given more God given natural catching/route abilities it seems like. I had Watson firmly entrenched as an option in Round 2 for us and I'll stand by that - many will argue that is too early...however I think this cat may just be one of those surprises and if you wait till the third when many argue he should go, you've missed him.
